Chicken broth vegetable soup is a seasonal soup that is usually prepared from what has grown in the garden or found in the market at a certain time of the year. This summer soup I cooked on strong chicken broth from chicken breast, cooked with a bunch of fresh herbs and arrows of garlic. In early summer, the arrows of garlic want to attach somewhere. Throw it away - the hand does not rise, it is possible to prepare them only within reasonable limits, but in the broth they are simply irreplaceable - chicken with garlic is very well combined. New potatoes, early cabbage, first tomatoes and sweet Bulgarian pepper will make an excellent company of chicken breast.
On hot summer days, this dish will replace both the first and the second. Slice the boiled breast into thin slices, place on a slice of fresh black bread and serve to the table with a plate of thick soup, seasoned with sour cream.
